EMILIO PUCCI is one lovely Designer! His Spring/Summer 2011 Collection is in stark contrast to his usual psychedelic prints that generally grace the runway. Pucci's hometown of Florence, Italy and the Mediterranean Sea seem to be the dominating theme in creating his lavish collection. The embroidered silk dresses are so light and delicate it gives the illusion that the models are floating. This collection has me thinking about Lake Como, Italy and all its beauty! All I need is a white sun hat, a straw bag, and a vintage antique wooden boat to complete this inviting look!
I adore Native American influence in fashion! The beautiful colors from the Native American culture are so eye catching.ANNA SUI spring/summer collection is full of the traditional, beautiful, vibrant colors, and inspiration that’s weaved throughout the Native American culture. I’m a bit bias since my Great Great Grand Mother was full Cherokee and I can thank her for my high cheekbones! Here are some of my favorite pieces from ANNA SUI Collection!
Hold the phone! It's a Miu Miu OBSESSION! I can't take my eyes off these "hottie tottie" heels! I can see them on my feet now….glowing and winking at me. I know what you're thinking "aren't those shoes a bit much"? Well let me easy your mind, these shoes are EPIC! They're just what the Doctor ordered when I'm looking to spice up a simple black dress. Give me 1 hour in these amazing stilettos and I will set the streets ablaze!
Sometimes things in REVERSE can be so lovely and grand! I'm completely enthralled with the new Spring/Summer nail trend. The "Reverse French Manicure" or "Half Moon" is a fresh and chic look for your nails! It seems simple enough and might be a fun DIY (do it yourself) project! I might rock this hot trend on my next date. Hmmm…..on second thought maybe I shouldn't attempt this look by myself the first time. I don't have a very steady hand when it comes to painting my nails. I would probably end up with nail polish all over my hands and my date would be left wondering if I got in a fight with a stray cat or something. Yeah, I'll leave this look to the professionals!
Giorgio Armani brought something fierce with his Privé Spring Couture Collection! So much structure and striking colors are weaved through this futuristic and Asian inspired Collection. It's very unusual to see dark jewel tones presented in a Spring Collection but Armani makes it work beautifully. I love the fluid movement of the garments, the fabric looks almost liquid… its brilliant! The silhouettes are magnificent gracing the models bodies like a second skin. I have dreams of owning a gown or jacket from Giorgio Armani Privé Collection. If I ever win the MegaMillion that's one of the first things I'll buy. Don't worry I'll still blog if I ever become a millionaire by luck of the lottery, I couldn't leave my readers high and dry. : )
Check out these VERY cool hats by SUPREME, a New York label! I've seen a couple of Fellas sporting them lately and I love the colors and prints they come in. My favorite is the plaid one below! Hmm…..I wonder if females can rock them?!
No-one romanticizes fashion like VALENTINO! The light, sheer, delicate fabrics seem to sing a love song while the dresses grace the runway. VALENTINO Haute Couture Spring 2011 Collection is a love letter from your beloved, it's finding the man you're going to marry, it's the first kiss that makes you weak in the knees – this Collection is the ultimate LOVE STORY! Too much you say? C'mon how can you NOT think about falling in love when viewing these gorgeous gowns?! It's Collections like this, that makes me VERY grateful for those individuals who operate in their God give talent! I will always heart Mr. Valentino as one my favorite Designers! He is a true master at capturing the pure essences of female beauty!
You say want! I say NEED! I'm swooning over the Spring '11 Collection bags. One bag in particular I've been fantasizing about is the GUCCI handmade top handle bag! As soon as I saw it I said … "I'm going to make you mine!" Yes, sometimes I say sweet things to the bags I'm fawning over . On occasion I've been caught demonstrating my love for Designer bags by petting them in public…it's not creepy…. it's admiration. Currently I only have visitation rights to view my "love bag" at the Gucci store, I will NOT be awarded full custody of the bag due to the fact that I can't afford the staggering $5,300 sticker price. No worries I will figure out a way for me and my "love bag" to be together before the year ends. Let's see…let's see…what can I do to make some quick cash? Lemonade stand? Bake Sale? Sell my junk on Ebay? Hmmm……

Here's a short film directed by my favorite Director – Joe Wright, featuring my favorite label – CHANEL starring my favorite actress – Keira Knightley! I love when Fashion and Film come together! After viewing this short film I'm tempted to suit up in a camel boysuit, hop on my bike and peddle around town, while wearing the sultry CoCo Mademoiselle perfume. Hey, I know a bike is not as sexy as a motorcycle but that's all I can do. I'm VERY scared of Motorcycles.
Spring is HERE!! To commemorate the arrival of the warmer season I thought I would feature the "Top 10 Trends for Spring". My favorite look for this season is without a doubt the wide leg pant, and the floral dress! I also love the sheer blouse and the full skirt…oh and color blocking, mix n' match. I can't forget the white dress! Okay, who am I fooling….. I love ALL the trends for Spring! Here's hoping my savings account doesn't suffer too much!
